SPIDER-Digital African Network for Cervical Cancer Elimination (DANCCE)


KENCO with support from Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (SPIDER) Center and in collaboration with Uganda Cancer Institute is currently mapping digital resources on cervical cancer in 16 African countries. This project aims to address the fragmented and uncoordinated digital health landscape around the entire continuum of cervical cancer care in 16 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The lack of coordination results in sub-optimal use of resources, duplication of efforts, and inadequate impact of digital health initiatives. The project proposes to map digital health initiatives and resources on cervical cancer in the region and develop an online catalog that will be routinely updated. This mapping exercise will provide information to players in the digital health space on existing initiatives and opportunities for collaboration, promoting integration and interoperability of digital health initiatives, and enable governments and global funders to invest in areas where there are gaps.
